Want to see behind-the-scenes of a television show production? The Kalb Report is going to be filming another live episode on November 19th with nightly news legend Tod Koppel, and you’re invited! Join SPAs Bryan and Kevin and volunteer at The Kalb Report, and learn what really goes into a television production. This is a great opportunity for all GW students, but especially if you’re in SMPA! Oh, and you get free pizza too, so it’s a win-win!
Volunteers need to be available between 5:30 and 9:30pm on Monday, November 19th. Send Bryan an email at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, November 13th if you’re able to come, so we can make sure that there’s a role for you!
And if you’re not interested in volunteering, you can still come and sit in the studio audience and watch an awesome show. Get tickets at kalb.gwu.edu before they’re sold out!
Join us Thursday, October 6th 7:30pm in the UHP Club room for movie night! We bring the movie, and the dinner. You just show up. This is open to everyone at GW, so bring a friend!
Fagbug is a Volkswagen Beetle owned by Erin Davies of Albany vandalized on the 11th Annual National Day of Silence in 2007. Because it sported a rainbow sticker, Erin’s car was spray painted with the words “fag” and “u r gay” placed on the driver’s side window and hood of her car. Despite initial shock and embarrassment, Erin decided to embrace what happened by leaving the graffiti on her car and, in response, put her studies on hold to embark upon a video-documented 55,000 mile journey across the United States, during which she interviewed 500 people and spoke out against hate crimes. This 2009 documentary is a touching, sometimes upsetting, and surprisingly funny tour of America’s changing attitudes toward LGBT citizens.

The UHP’s LGBT film series recommences this year with Were the World Mine, a romantic musical fantasy about empowerment, love and Shakespeare! Timothy, an openly gay student at a private boys’ school, is bullied by the rugby team, on whose captain he has a crush. When Timothy is cast as Puck in the senior production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, he discovers the recipe for a love potion that throws his homophobic town into chaos as community members fall into love with their same-sex friends, bosses, and co-workers. Confronted by the hilarity and heartbreak that ensues, Timothy learns surprising truths in the midst of fantasy.
